Since lockdown began and the salon had to close its doors, our team has been anxiously waiting, with bated breath and increasingly scruffier hair, for news of when we can get back to work and on the 11th May, Dominic Raab made the announcement we had all been waiting for…well, sort of. Businesses like ours that fall under the ‘personal care services’ category will have to wait until the 4th of July at the earliest before we can start bringing staff and clients back and when we do, measures will have to have been taken to ensure every one is as safe a possible. Although this news is as upsetting as our hair is right now, we have been doing our best to make the most of this bad situation and we wanted to share with you what we have been up to. From the whole team at Charlottes Academy, we hope you, your family, and your friends are safe and well, and we cannot wait to see you all again.
Prepare for reopening
Exact guidelines on what salons will need to do before reopening have not yet been set in the UK but some countries are starting to open salons again as part of easing measures so we are keeping an eye on what our peers from around the world have been doing in order to get their clients back in seats. We are doing all we can to pre-empt and prepare, and this month our whole team has successfully completed their Barbacide COVID-19 Training for effective infection control!
Sprucing up the Salon
Never one to miss an opportunity, while the salon has been empty we felt it was time for a bit of a freshen up. We've got some lovely new plants for the front of the salon and we have updated the paint on some of the walls to brighten things up a little...
Last but by no means least...
